Mirizzi’s syndrome is a rare complication of gallstone disease , that gallbladder lumen can lie alongside the common hepatic duct, resulting in inflamation and resultan bile duct stricture . most cases are not indentified preoperatively. variations of the cystic duct and its point of union with the common hepatic duct are surgically important . Here, we present an unusual case of type I Mirizzi’s syndrome with an un common anomalous cystic duct , that long cystic duct joins common hepatic duct behind the duodenum . Also, there is a high bilirubin level due to gallstone and bile duct stone.
